against israel because their defenses against short-range missiles, in this case, with the iron dome system, but also with the patriot system against possible iranian long-range missiles is going to take leverage away from iran. keep pulling the world together against iran. that's the source of the problem. >> what about the gaza cease-fire? when do hostilities begin again? when does fighting begin again? how much time has been purchased? >> if egypt will take a strong role here to stop the tunnels from being used for weaponry getting into gaza, this could lead to a real plus. >> you know, i read something this week, robert keegan wrote, this is not a question of american influence in the region, it's american interests to take on all of these difficult problems. you talk about syria, the oppression there. conn condoleezza rice arguing in an op-ed this morning in "the washington post" that the u.s. has to do something, yes, it's risky, but there has to be more involvement. the breakdown of the middle east state system is a graver risk than the risks of getting involved in syria. iran

. this is about defense cuts, discretionary spending, and it's about tax cuts. only if the democrats agree to bring in the programs for the elderly and poor and middle class would they become part of the discussion. and there's a strong faction among democrats who are saying do not do that. you know, social security is not part of this problem. so it should not be part of the discussion. harry reid, in fact, has been extremely firm on that. he said i will not be part of discussions that include social security as part of this bargain. so if they stick to that, then they won't be. >> yeah, there's so many moving pieces. susan, today, the president's going to meet with small business owners. friday he's going to montgomery, pennsylvania, to visit a small business that will be impacted. very campaign like stuff. what's he trying to do here? >> yeah, who is he not meeting with this week? that would be congressional -- that would be members of congress, especially those house republicans would be the critical partners on this. so he's trying to take a very different approach than he took in the
president. >> brian: joining us is the navy commander from the office of secretary of defense under george bush. he is jd gordon. is it up to the president to get more involved to tell morsi to stop with the absolute monarch thing. >> i think the president should stand up to the muslim brotherhood and say we will not send aid dollars to egypt. morsi put himself [pwao-fr] the courts and law. it is one dick traitorship replaced by another. we need to get tough on egypt. >> steve: when the arab spring first started people were optmistic and it is not turning out the way we hoped it would. >> no, in 2010 the survey poll in egypt found that 17 percent of the egyptians were favorable to the united states and 24 percent favorable to al-qaida and 60 percent to the islamic brotherhood. if you had general elections and threw out mubarack you would get the muslim brotherhood in charge. >> brian: are you encouraged that the people would egypt decided they would not stand with him. >> this is an encouraging sign. i jipt has mod rate secular parties. we should support them. that's the only way to have c
of defense but kerry may have the edge. >> the new strategy is to bore our enemies to death. >> reporter: and george, a possible political drawback for picking senator kerry is it opens up the seat once thought to be reliably democrat. but the senator says that's not necessarily the case. >> the senators i spoke to on "this week" are pretty optimistic about getting a deal. but the staff meeting all last week during that holiday didn't bridge very many gaps. >> reporter: no, all the reporting i have indicates there really hasn't been any tangible progress made. of course, nothing has dissolved, there's been no blowups which is good news. but as of now, they are still miles and miles apart, george. >> jake tapper, thanks very much. >>> george, if you're worried about the fiscal cliff, well, there's always the power ball fever hitting everyone. the jackpot hitting a record $425 million. it could be higher before wednesday's drawing. john muller is right where people are lining up to buy the hot tickets. john, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, amy. this is where the dream begins for m

, a republican nightmare will occur. all income tax rates will go up and defense spending will be cut by 600 billion. other spending, some of it dear to republicans, will also be cut by another 600 billion. the fiscal cliff is much scarier to republicans than it is to democrats. so, the president and his allies must continue to make republicans believe they are willing to go off cliff. senator durbin simply said if we do go off the cliff or the curb on january 1st, we have to be able to quote stop economic growth to prevent us from stopping at the economic growth and hurting everyone. in other words, we have to then quickly craft a legislative deal that can stop the damage to the economy that would occur if we went off the cliff and stayed off the cliff. john boehner recognizes that the fiscal cliff is the president's leverage, but boehner believes he has leverage, too. politico reported this morning president barack obama made a demand of how john boehner near the end of their first white house meeting on the fiscal cliff, raised the debt limit before year's end. boehner responded, quote, t
can legally marry. marriage is usually a state law matter but under the federal defense of marriage act, a law passed in 1996, the federal government does not recognize those marriages. in that situation, a gay couple who is legally married in boston, cannot file a joint tax return. they cannot get benefits under social security for their spouse like another merit couple would. a series of lawsuits have been filed a federal appeals court in boston and new york ruled tartabull law is unconstitutional. it denies gays and lesbians equal protection under the law. they are legally married. the court said they deserve the same legal rights. the obama administration would not defend that law. the house republicans appointed john clement. many of those cases are under appeal and they will surely decide one of those cases this spring host: is there one more likely than the other? guest: that is an inside baseball question. the problem that arose is that elena kagan was the solicitor general when some of those cases were beginning and she mentioned at her confirmation hearings that she had pa

her defense but says he's open to today's meeting. >> she asked to meet with us, and i will listen to what she has to say about her role in benghazi, but i can tell you this. the more i know about benghazi, the more upset i am that the consulate was even open on september 11th. when you look at the history and the reporting coming out of libya about the dangers, it should never have been open or heavily reinforced. after the attack, i think the story we were told about a spontaneous event caused by video where a mob turned into a riot is less credible than ever. >> smart of her to call the meeting. acting cia director michael morrell will accompany rice during today's meeting, fueling speculation that the ambassador is topping president obama's list to replace secretary of state clinton. some say the president could announce his choice this week. >> i'm still holding out. i think it may be jill kelley who gets the nod. >>> a new report says the assad regime received help from russia as international sanctions are beginning to cripple the syrian economy. eight round-trip flights bet
, predictably the aclu is blasting that decision as unconstitutional. let's bring former defense attorney and trial attorney kirsten wilson. let's begin with the basics. we'll put up the firstndment. congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of a religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. now, as drafted, it only applied to congress but supreme court, you know what the founders meant it to apply to any government action, state or local. a judge is an arm of the government by forcing on kid to the church does he breach the first amendment? >> absolutely. case law based on the first amendment specifically says state action including the court and any sort of coercive environment, sentencing somebody and giving them the option to going to church or prison and involves religion, it is. >> it's a plea agreement. i have stated in one of the articles that i read, the parents and this juvenile were adults. they agreed to it. he is not being forced to practice a particular religion. >> gregg: even a judge, his name is mike norman, his sentence violates the constitution. let's
by the department of defense, it's now a not for profit called helmets to hard hats. and what it basically does, it identifies 60,000 american businesses and some of the trade unions. they collaborate to get together, to identify veterans who have already had extraordinary training and discipline and leadership and teamwork and it accelerates the apprenticeship program. so these individuals could be making $60,000, $70,000 a year if there was work to be had here. so it's an investment in america, it's an investment in american businesses, and it says to our returning veterans in a real sincere and genuine way, thank you for your service. mr. garamendi: you said earlier that the american society of engineers, i think that was the name, said that we have a d rating for infrastructure and that we need over $2 trillion. i don't know anybody in my district where we may have a serious flood in the next three days that says the infrastructure is adequate. they're look at those levinees and they're watching the water rise and they're saying, this isn't sufficient to protect us. so in a very real sense
want to put that out there, put them on the defensive. and by the way, if they reject a fair deal, it makes it easier for us to deal with our own politics because we've showed that the problem is more than tehran. >> david ignatius, the same question i asked richard haass. do you think the iranians will take a threat from the united states more seriously than saddam hussein, or noriega or other dictators took in years past? >> the iranians have believed for years, certainly ever since i visited tehran in 2006, that the u.s. is not prepared to go to war to stop iran's nuclear program no matter what we may say or threaten. they just don't think -- they think it would be crazy for us to do it and that we're not crazy. i think an additional problem for president obama in making his policy by any means necessary credible is that this presidential campaign showed clearly to me the absolute defining moment was the third debate on foreign policy. it showed that the american people do not want to go to war again. the two candidates, romney and obama, were identical in expressing quite rest

for the iron dome defense system. the most important meeting is tomorrow with egypt's president morsi. morsi wants american aid for the survival of egypt, and she wants morsi to really pressure hamas to pull back and come up with some permanent agreement. interestingly clinton was going only briefly to ramallah, to the west bank. it will be more than two years since she's been there. that tells you everything, that the more moderate branch of the palestinians really are irrelevant to all of this. the real power is political power, at least, with hamas. >> our chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell in d.c. tonight. andrea, thanks. >>> in this country we have been reporting on the rush among some big retailers out there to push the traditional black friday shopping day frenzy into thursday which, of course, is thanksgiving day. now, on top of that, it looks like if you plan on lining up outside your local walmart, you may have company in the form of protesters. our report tonight on all of it from nbc's kristen dahlgren. >> reporter: where they expect to see signs advertising blac
dome and other u.s.-israel missile defense programs. the bottom line is that is the key here because, as you know, iron dome has been what has been enabling israel to defend itself with all these rockets from gaza raining down. so the promise of even more u.s. aid to grow that system was a big sweetner here to get the prime minister along, trace. >> trace: ed, the president has a complicated relationship with the new egyptian president. >> that's right. president morsey, a member of the muslim brotherhood. there has been lot of weariness about his leadership. bottom line, you will remember a couple of months ago during the campaign, the president said that he wasn't sure if egypt was now an ally. you see secretary clinton was there today though sitting down with president morsey. he has been an important part of getting us to this point. showing some leadership so far though republicans like lindsey graham have trend to cut off u.s. aid to egypt unless he steps up even more. today senator graham, two others republicans said -- put out this tough statement saying, quote: we urge pres
